Happy Veterans Day to our associates who have served or continue to serve in the military.
To celebrate our veterans, and their families, Walmart Radio DJs, Bo Woloszyn and Antonio Williams, chatted with Brynt Parmeter, who leads Walmart’s military programs. Brynt is a veteran himself. He spent 23 years in the U.S. Army.
Walmart made a commitment to hire 250,000 veterans. To date, we’ve hired more than 320,000 veterans and military spouses since 2013, and our focus on supporting and hiring veterans only continues.
Brynt said Veterans Day honors both veterans and their support systems. He said he appreciates our veterans and all associates who make Walmart great, because together we are a family.
“First, I want to say thank you from me. I also want to say, as a veteran, we couldn’t do this without our fellow associates who aren’t veterans,” he said. “Thank you to all the non-veterans who are out there that are part of this Walmart team. You make Walmart a great place to be and a great place to work. And, we feel like we’ve found another family. This holiday that we call Veterans Day, it’s not just about those who served. It’s about those who served and who they’re with now. And that’s our Walmart family.”
Bo and Antonio enjoyed having Brynt in the studio to learn more about Walmart’s commitment to veterans. To check out the full conversation, listen to the podcast. Search for Walmart Radio Podcast wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.
“I want to thank Brynt for stopping by and joining us in the studio. On behalf of all our veterans and military spouses, thank you to Brynt and team, who make our company such a warm place to work,” Antonio said.
“It’s an honor to work for a company that supports our military in so many ways. Having Brynt in the studio reminded me of visiting our DC associates at DC 6040 in Hope Mills, North Carolina. Antonio and I met so many associates who are military veterans at that DC. Big thanks to all of our veterans and their continued dedication to serve our customers and communities around the world,” Bo said.
